After upgrading vCenter to 4.1, the transaction logs grow larger than normal (1026407)
To resolve this issue, consult your DBA and choose an appropriate Recovery Model for your SQL database.
To choose an appropriate Recovery Model, see the MSDN article Choosing the Recovery Model for a Database.
For more information, see SQL Server Recovery Model Affects Transaction Log Disk Space Requirements (1001046).
Note: When you upgrade a vCenter Server that is deployed with a Microsoft SQL Server 2005 database to vCenter Server 4.1 Update 1, the recovery model continues to be the same as what it was before the upgrade. However, during upgrade, the Recovery Model will be in the bulk mode and may cause the transaction log file to consume a large amount of disk storage space. For more information, see the VMware vCenter Server 4.1 Update 1 Release Notes.
